A mek'leth is the Klingon short sword that appears in several episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
I’ve been re-watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and decided to make Worf’s weapon, the Mek’leth. (Apparently, Worf got tired of hearing Jadzia’s endless Curzon stories. Join the club!)
I started by cutting out the profile from a sheet of 1/4″ poplar. I used a Dremel tool to bevel the edges of the blade.
Much putty and sanding refines the curves and bevels
A base coat of silver. The grey square was where the clamps held it during painting.
I used a thin stretchy vinyl to wrap the grip of the handle.
